Watercolour painting is an absorbing, meditative art form that many people would like to enjoy but don't attempt to because they believe they can't paint or simply don't know where to begin. An encouraging voice and a clear, easy-to-follow approach is often all that's needed to give people the confidence to get started and keep going. That's exactly what Watercolour provides. Paul Clark, an enthusiastic and accomplished painter who runs his own art school, explains the fundamentals in a friendly and accessible way. He shows readers what they really need in terms of tools and materials--starting with a limited color palette that can be mixed to create the vast majority of colors required. He then explains and illustrates the basic techniques, before presenting ten of his paintings that put those techniques into action. Each painting is broken down into stages, with clear instructions and photographs for readers to follow, plus plenty of helpful tips. In addition, there are three feature spreads that focus on particular areas of interest for beginners, including special effects, painting trees and painting skies.

Hilary Page has created this book to help artists develop that ability and get watercolor painting right - from the start. The book explores four practical ways of learning to see; by understanding the primary geometric forms - the sphere, cylinder, cube, and their derivatives - and relating them to the natural world; by examining relative values of light and dark as they occur in the primary forms; by understanding how the eye perceives color; and by studying the principles of perspective. Complex concepts such as these are presented in ways that make them easy to understand. At the heart of this book are six sections that focus on the basic geometric forms. Each section consists of a series of three to five in-depth lessons that explore the characteristics of a specific form while simultaneously exploring ways of seeing, drawing, handling watercolor, and composing a painting.

A progressive, informative art course for beginner watercolorists, revealing the secrets and science behind watercolor. Many watercolor artists are disappointed with the results of their endeavors, because their attempts at painting do not always turn out as intended. However, the majority of mistakes are caused by the misuse of paint rather than artistic inability. Understanding the medium and how to use it will turn failure into success, and discovering the truth about how to use watercolors is exciting, liberating and enormously rewarding. The Watercolour Enigma is based on a practical course by artist Stephen Coates, and is designed to take the student through a process of learning rarely seen in other practical art books. By examining the basic science of watercolour - the properties of water and color pigment, and through a series of practical, straightforward, step-by-step painting exercises, budding painters will leave Stephen's book not only with a mine of watercolor knowledge, but also will step away with a selection of stunning paintings they will be proud to have painted. Fulfil your dream and learn to paint like a true, watercolour expert.
